Academy Award-winning director Jordan Peele is reviving The Twilight Zone, and has just released the trailer for the first season.
The anthology series, which originally aired from 1959-1964 is being rebooted. It’s expected that, like the original, each episode will be self-contained and have its own cast. Sanaa Lathan, Tracy Morgan, Jessica Williams, Adam Scott, and John Cho, among others, will appear in the series, which will begin streaming on Apr. 1.
Peele has also directed Get Out and the series Big Mouth.
The director, producer, and actor turned 40-years-old yesterday and received a myriad of birthday wishes on Twitter, as well as excitement about The Twilight Zone.
